It is time, says Alex T. Miller, a senior advisor to the Ethereum blockchain development team.
“It is time to move away from a very traditional model of development where you have a team of developers that are looking at the technical side of things and the business side of it, to something where you can actually do a lot of things on your own and have the team work on that,” Miller said in an interview with CNNMoney.
Miller was one of the people behind the Ethereum team during the development of the first major version of the cryptocurrency.
“We have this huge platform, which is the blockchain, and there is a lot more work that needs to be done, but it is still early days and we’re still building,” he said.
“We are not ready for that level of innovation yet.”
Miller believes that Ethereum will see a massive leap in adoption in the future.
“I think that Ethereum is going to get to a point where people will be willing to pay for development time on a platform that is completely open and accessible,” he added.
The cryptocurrency is expected to overtake bitcoin as the second-largest cryptocurrency after the US dollar this year.
Miller, who joined the Ethereum development team in 2016, also said that the team will soon release the first official version of Ethereum Core.
The team will be releasing the code base of Ethereum as a GitHub repository, and will be open to the public, but they will only release the software as an official build.
